Our lived lives are formed from the physical imprint, the memory, of where we originated from. We have, as humans, originated from stars, and as Carl Sagan suggests, it has taken a long time for us to evolve into the form we have now. Is it possible for us to have an affiliation of our origins, of the Cosmos? We are star stuff inhabiting star-stuff: our bodies are one and the same as the vessel that contains us. The infant in the womb, the mollusc in the shell, and humankind in the cosmos: each is within the other, yet each simultaneously is the other.
